For his third Blue Note album Blue Mode (1969), organist Reuben Wilson kept it right in the pocket and laid down one of the funkiest soul jazz workouts of the late-60s. Produced by Francis Wolff, the date featured Wilson at the helm of an airtight quartet with tenor saxophonist John Manning, guitarist Melvin Sparks, and drummer Tommy Derrick. Highlights of the set include Wilson’s grooving originals Bus Ride, Orange Peel, and Blue Mode, along with covers of Eddie Floyd’s Knock On Wood and Edwin Starr’s Twenty-Five Miles.
